Adjusting to spring

quickly disguises
turned to arousal and
the fleshy substance

becomes a physical
being and gleans an imagination

as wind blown
clouds slowly
shower in gentle infatuation
the spirit assigned to carry the
stars over earth

Life stretched into words

nature undressed
of the slosh and polish
spring in my breath

white face letters from
starved earth
easy as eyes closed

let loose from how to
fresh sheets for paradise
to begin anew

Slow sky vision

Around you the stars walk
as still we dream outside ourselves
into moving pictures

Ocean tossed dreams crashing onto rocks
and listening as heartbeats 
turn to an intimate vision
drinking from rivers we run
through the sky

The space that is not anywhere

Like great silver prisms
these thoughts return
flowing back into my mind
back to the front of night

where fingers of rain get tangled in
the smooth facade
and bolts of lightning fatigue
the broken moon
trying not to understand

what's there
between the sand
blowing in the sky

An Account Of Our Surroundings

the tiny anxieties
we know
like dirt painted by
cleansing rain
heard by unseen air

we know them by the ten thousand
scars on dry hills
oceans of single gunshots

bleeding rivers
that tear into forest flowers
as rare as peace
passing the testimony of sleeping beasts

Black Snake

uncoiling in a wake
of deepening silence
a lining left in its place
a history time drew out and

unwinding held back smiles
quietly spreading forward
behind a curiosity
